Company Shop recently used The Skills Company's free pre-recruitment programme, to find new staff for their Middleton site.

As part of the agreement, The Skills Company designed a programme to give the company a choice of well trained, motivated and enthusiastic candidates who were all fully equipped with the skills and confidence to perform their new roles well.

After successfully interviewing and appointing seven of the candidates Chris Davies, Retail Support, Company Shop said:

“We worked with The Skills Company when recruiting for our new retail site in Middleton. Company Shop as an organisation seeks to achieve economic, environmental and social value through our work, and by working with The Skills Company, we were able to extend our social impact to our recruitment process as well.

 “As a result of this collaboration between ourselves and The Skills Company, seven impressive candidates from the local area have been offered roles at our site. We are very much looking forward to the store’s opening and working with our new colleagues.”
